What are those weird things that pop up in the woods after the rain? Are you mystified by wild mushrooms? Curious? Scared? Or do they make you hungry?

Join a foraging family who hunt, photograph, identify, and love to eat the fungi in New England for a discussion and walk at the Providence Public Library titled Mushroom Identification for Beginners. We will dispel common myths, learn how to safely identify mushrooms with visual clues and guidebooks, and discuss mycophagy, the cooking and eating of wild mushrooms. 

The 3 Foragers are from southeast Connecticut and members of Connecticut Valley Mycological Society, Connecticut-Westchester Mycological Association, and the North American Mycological Association, as well as avid wild food foragers. They write a blog about their adventures and travels at http://the3foragers.blogspot.com/
